It was still overcast again today with the odd shower for company – some summer weather we are having at the moment! This is a great little round, visiting the often missed (due to more exalted company) Thornythwaite Fell which offers fine views of Borrowdale and to the higher fells. It was a special occasion for Angus today too…
